Too purpley, too tickly, too puckery, too prickly! There is not a single outfit in the closet that our little fashion plate wants to wear. She tries on everything, but nothing is quite right. And the outfits are getting wilder by the minute! It's a scene that is all too familiar to parents, wrapped up in a package that is all too difficult to resist: a playful rhyme scheme and colorful, textile-driven art.

Everyone has a favorite outfit, right? The one that fits perfectly and is comfy and becoming.

Some kids love playing dress-up, but for "every day wear," most have preferences and know that certain outfits just don'!

Some clothes are just too scratchy, too stripey, or too baggy! Or, just TOO PURPLEY!

This book will strike a chord with parents and kids alike, as outfit after outfit gets tossed aside while our adorable protagonist searches for the one that's "just right!"

The center of the book has the eyes hopping as stripes pop off the page to match the "TOO STRIPEY" text. Every page will engage young readers and they'll be crying out for the whole book to be re-read so they can shout out the lines along with this little fashionista.

A first time picture book for both author and illustrator, Bloomsbury shows that it knows its business by matching up two pros waiting for a "just right" debut.

Parents should be prepared for calls of "encore" at bedtime with this one!
